He'd made two interactive fiction works up to this point, "Tapestry" and "Slouching towards Bedlam". In the second case, he'd made it collaborating with an author named Star Foster, and they'd won a bunch of awards for it a few years before. I wanted to interview each of them about collaborating with the other, so I interviewed him asking lots of questions about the collaboration process.
Sadly, it was not to be - Star Foster died of a sudden blood clot a very short time later, weeks before our scheduled interview. I dedicated GET LAMP to her.
